FlyCast radio app debuts
FlyCast, formerly known as FlyTunes, has released the first native version of its self-named radio application for iPhones and iPod touches. By default the app lists and streams more than a thousand radio stations, divided between formats such as music, talk and information. Listeners can also access any Internet-only stream listed through Shoutcast, of which there are said to be over 25,000.
The app's primary feature is said to be TimeSlip, which supports several timeshifting functions. Users can opt to rewind to the beginning of a talk show, perform buffering to keep listening without a connection, or skip tracks on certain webcast stations. Also present in FlyCast is an internal web browser, and a battery conservation mode. The software is a free download from the App Store.
